In our first episode of the Space Brothers Podcast we sit down and interview our co-host Chip Riggs so you all get to know him a little better.
Chip started riding BMX in the early 80s in Chicago. He moved to Orlando FL in 1985 and met Ron Bonner and got involved in the early days of UGP (aka Underground Products). Chip has helped create ads both as a freelance photographer and a graphic designer for a number of brands in the BMX industry. Not only was he involved with UGP but he also contributed to the early days of The Shadow Conspiracy and Subrosa which today are two of the most popular brands in BMX worldwide. He later went on to become the art director for The Shadow Conspiracy, Subrosa, and Rant for 5 years.
Back in the late 80s Chip helped out Plywood Hoods member Mike Dailey with the Aggro Rag zine and more recently the Aggro Rag book as well as the Subrosa Aggro Rag DTT frames.
He's gotten more and more involved in photography outside of BMX while still helping out with numerous BMX projects as they present themself. Chip currently works as a freelance graphic designer and photographer. So let's get to it!
